Norton celebrates the 150th anniversary of Freud’s birth by reissuing Peter Gay’s best-selling biography, featuring a new introduction. “Intelligent and wholly absorbing. . . . Judicious, original biography, scrupulously grounded in close readings of [Freud’s] work.”—Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

“A magisterial contribution to the history of ideas. A fresh, illuminating perspective on one of the pivotal figures of our time.”—J. Anthony Lukas

“Remarkable . . . briskly traces the story of Freud’s life and education, deftly weaving the familiar narrative with a style that makes it seem fresh and lively.”—Chicago Tribune

“Brilliant. . . . A dazzling performance. . . . Gay’s ability to integrate into a coherent whole the vast published and unpublished literature on Freud—including hundreds of previously unknown or inaccessible letters—is awesome. . . . A work of art.”—Jonathan Sharp, San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

“Elegant . . . puts Freud’s life into the context of his time while attempting to explain him for readers who cannot escape his shadow. In Gay’s hands, the Olympian figure is almost within mortal reach.”—Michael Skube, News and Observer

About the Author:

Peter Gay is Sterling Professor Emeritus at Yale University and the author of important historical works, including Schnitzler’s Century: The Making of Middle-Class Culture 1815­1914. He lives in New York City.
